757: The Alnwick Brewery | Alnwick IPA

The brewery: "The Alnwick Brewery Company Limited initially started to brew beer in Alnwick from around 1750’s from a site in the town’s Dispensary Street. Sadly, in the 1960’s the buildings were pulled down before they could be listed, and the brewery temporarily closed only to be relaunched again in 2005 by the son of the original brewery’s last managing director. In 2013 the business was acquired by the Harry Hotspur group who also merged into it the significant brewing skills and brewery of another local brewer (namely the former VIP Brewery at Hawkhill)."

The beer: "Our Flagship ale. This is a traditional style English India pale ale with a medium body, A

balanced and rounded hoppy profile and a distinguishable fruity character.  Perfectly drank at a temperature of 12*c and below.  It is best paired with meals such as seafood, grilled chicken and pasta."

Not my favourite style of beer but it was at least of good quality. Another that would work better for me served a little colder in warm weather.
